Maybe to delay health insurance
"The IRS will have the ability potentially" to deny or delay health care.
Sustainability, not unpopularity, did it in
"Obamacare is so flat-out unpopular, that even the Obama administration chose to reject part of Obamacare last Friday, when they tried to throw out the CLASS Act, which is the long-term care function."
Law-making equated with thievery
"We know that President Obama stole over $500 billion out of Medicare to switch it over to Obamacare."
Claim is based on squishy report, according to the folks who wrote it
"Under Barack Obama the last two years, the number of federal limousines for bureaucrats has increased 73 percent."
CBO's take was much more mixed than that
"The CBO, the Congressional Budget Office has said that Obamacare will kill 800,000 jobs."
The number is right, but it wasn't secret
"Secretly, unbeknownst to members of Congress, over $105 billion was hidden in the Obamacare legislation."
A low-voltage notion
The federal government "now tells us which light bulbs to buy."
Projection, not a promise
"The White House promised us that all the spending would keep unemployment under 8 percent."
